Tszyu’s opponent announced

Tim Tszyu’s international opponent was named yesterday evening and he will shape up against WBO world number seven Takeshi Inoue on November 17, although a location is yet to be announced.

Tszyu had been tipped to fight former world champion Tony Harrison in order to further justify his boxing ability but after the American was given a 24-hour deadline to accept the contract he refused to sign.

It left Tszyu’s promoter No Limit Boxing searching for someone who will test its fighter and the 17-1 boxer will travel to Australia. His only loss coming at the hands of undefeated WBC middleweight champion Jamie Munguia.

With Tszyu being named as Brian Castano’s mandatory challenger for his WBO super-welterweight belt, making the next step in his career is important to prepare for the title.

Inoue was asked by Fox Sports’ Ben Damon about why he was offered the fight.

“Probably because among all the world-ranked boxers, they consider me a low-risk opponent,” he said.

“I believe they will regret it.”

He added that he will finish Tszyu and walk away with a knockout victory.

Despite Inoue’s insistence on dominating the fight, Tszyu told Damon that “you need to prepare yourself”.

He added: “I’ve always been a fighter that likes to fight and I don’t like to sit on my arse.”

“I think it’s going to be the hardest fight of my career.”

Similar to Inoue, Tszyu said the fight won’t last the distance despite the precarious fighting style of his Japanese opponent.
